Dental Assistants Recognition Week 2017

Written by

Dental Assistant Recognition Week (also known as DARW) is held the first full week in March every year. Designated by the American Dental Assistants Association, it is the perfect time to acknowledge and recognize the versatile, multi talented member of your dental team — the Dental Assistant.

Dental assistants are a key part of the dental practice year-round, but they get a special week dedicated to them each year for all the great work they do!

Dental Assistants Recognition Week is scheduled for March 5-11, 2017- a week long tribute to the commitment and dedication dental assistants. Dentists in the United States and Canada will celebrate by honoring their dental assistants for the variety of duties they perform and helping them provide patients with quality dental care.

This year's theme, "Patient focused with passion and purpose." acknowledges the growing importance of dentistry's role in health care and the responsibilities of dental assistants.

Contributing to quality dental care, today’s dental assistants are role models of professional development. Strengthening the entire dental team, they enhance patient satisfaction throughout the world. It is important to let them know they are appreciated!

Chicago Midwinter 2017: 24th Annual OHA Gala

Written by

Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting would not seem complete without the Annual Gala & Benefit that Oral Health America holds. This year, the event was held February 22nd at Navy Pier in Chicago with a fun Broadway theme. We were more than happy to sponsor the Wine Draw.

The Annual Gala & Benefit is celebrated with more than 1,000 dental and industry professionals, representing as many as 300 companies, private practices and organizations from many disciplines. The Gala is one of Oral Heath America’s largest fundraisers throughout the year, and helps OHA support the efforts that raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

This year OHA awarded its Tribute Award to its first ever female recipient, Milly Goldstein. Milly has made a huge impact on oral health on a national level during her exemplary career in the dental industry. Among her many accomplishments, Milly paved the way as the first female president of a dental company.

We were proud to have our own Vickie Waitsman, alongside Peggy Cottrell and Karen Neiner present the award to Milly. Thanks to Milly for her contributions to the dental community and thanks to OHA for hosting a wonderful event.

DentalEZ® Introduces the CORE™ Operatory Package

Written by

DentalEZ®, a supplier of integrated products and services for dental health professionals worldwide, is pleased to introduce the CORE package. Comprised of a patient chair, delivery system, and LED operatory light, the CORE package provides the complete essentials needed for a strong foundation in any dental operatory setting; comfort, quality, and efficiency all at an affordable price.

 

The CORE Chair provides optimal patient comfort, and is crowned with an easily adjustable double articulating, pinch-style head rest designed to work for the widest range of patients. Built with a fluid hydraulic cantilever mechanism, the CORE Chair is able to swivel 15 degrees, gliding effortlessly in both right and left directions. It has a reliable brake located on the back that secures the chair in a stationary position, and also has an emergency shut-down feature. The CORE Chair comes with a touch pad to control each function of the chair, and an optional foot control is available with four programmable pre-set positions. The CORE Chair is outfitted with seamed, durable NaugaSoft upholstery. The CORE Chair rests on a solid foundation made of durable cast iron, while the chair back, base, arm rest, and headrest are outfitted with an aluminum casting.

 

The CORE Delivery Unit comes equipped with five integrated handpiece holders, with easy snap-on caps available to cover unused holders for a clean, streamlined look. The unit offers recessed, secure tray placement for stability. The Magellan mounted CORE Delivery Unit allows for right- or left-handed dentistry, and is equipped with a side handle break for easy maneuvering. The rear assistant instrumentation has four different positions and can be located wherever the assistant is seated or standing. An easily accessible solids collector is also located in the middle of the unit. It is available with optional integrated touchpads.

 

Illuminating the oral cavity is the CORE LED Light. The CORE LED Light is rectangular in shape with 3 long lasting energy-efficient LED bulbs. With a dual axis movement, the CORE Light is effortlessly controlled by a sensor that reacts to a simple wave of the hand. Turn on/off and change intensity levels to either a low, medium, or high light (10, 20, and 30 thousand lux). Removable handles are magnetic, and the lens can be easily removed for cleaning purposes.

 *Dental Advisor Independent Report available upon request.

DentalEZ® recently donated a full shipment of dental supplies and equipment to Project Chimps, a rescue organization dedicated to the lifetime sanctuary care of hundreds of captive chimpanzees. Specifically, DentalEZ donated various dental products, and operatory and utility room equipment to Project Chimps’ new northern Georgia sanctuary including NevinLabs™ steel cabinets, DentalEZ® delivery units and operatory lights, StarDental® handpieces, and RAMVAC vacuums and compressors. The new dental facility will now have all components needed for complete and optimal dental care of the rescued animals.



Peter Volk, Territory Sales Manager for DentalEZ is heading the mission along with Southern Region Manager, Chuck Seeger, and Jason Hodkowski, Senior Institutional Sales Manager. The team is currently working with the company to create the dental facility. “It is interesting because as dental professionals our focus is almost always on our human patients,” remarked Volk. “What most people don’t think about is that all of the animals that they only see on Animal Planet or at the zoo need dental care. Once in a captive environment these animals need to receive all of the preventive care that we humans are accustomed to.”

A recent transfer carried out by Project Chimps prompted the charitable donation by DentalEZ, as well as widespread national attention. Nine chimpanzees once used as research animals at the New Iberia Research Center in Louisiana were just relocated to the new Project Chimps refuge, hundreds of miles from their former home in a lab where they were used as subjects in biomedical testing.



Workers with the non-profit organization transported all nine animals and now Project Chimps sanctuary, located in Morganton, Georgia, is their new home, a sprawling preserve where over 200 chimps will eventually roam free. The 236-acre sanctuary is located along a temperate rainforest, with rolling hills and a lush, green landscape. In addition to office buildings, a full veterinary clinic, and an upscale kitchen designed by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, there are currently four "villas" that can house 10-15 chimps each, and one larger group building that can house two groups of 10-15 chimps.

“It’s a very rewarding feeling to know that we are providing the medical and dental equipment to chimps that, up to this point, have spent most if not all of their lives in a research laboratory,” continued Volk. “As a DentalEZ representative, it is important that we give back not only to the people in our community, but also to those that do not have a voice. It is our calling as dental professionals to make sure that everyone, both human and animal, are treated with the utmost care and respect.”

In 2015, all chimpanzees were designated an endangered species, marking the end of privately funded research on chimpanzees in the US. Chimps are considered the smartest primate and the closest relatives to humans, which is why the New Iberia Research Center in Louisiana has used 220 of them for medical testing.



The opening of the new Project Chimps sanctuary follows a steady shift away from controversial biomedical research on chimpanzees across the country. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) began significantly phasing out its funding of federal research on chimps in 2013, and announced the retirement of its 50 remaining chimpanzees in November 2015.

NIH also ended its research support for chimps but did not own approximately 360 remaining around the US. Now the private institutions that own them, like the New Iberia Research Center, are following suit. However, due to limited space at existing sanctuaries such as Chimp Haven in Louisiana and Save the Chimps in Florida, the creation of new refuges like Project Chimps is crucial.
